Meal prep just became a lot sweeter with this delicious make ahead fruit on bottom mason jar yogurt.


Units Scale
  • 13 tsp fruit preserves
  • 1/23/4 cup yogurt


  1. Spoon the preserves or jam into the bottom of the mason jar (or whatever container you choose)
  2. Spoon the yogurt on top.
  3. Seal the top and keep refrigerated until use.


The fruit preserves are to your personal taste. I found using a product like Grandma Hoerner’s I actually wanted and needed less, because the flavor is so good. You don’t need as much as you might want with an artificial product.

Experiment with yogurt to discover your favorite. I’m having a moment with Icelandic yogurt so that’s what I used. It’s very high in protein and very low in sugar. So if you have this yogurt with a tsp of jam, you have a very high protein snack with very little sugar. And it’s so creamy, it feels like a treat.

This is so good, I can recommend this as your night time sweet fix. Instead of reaching for ice cream, consider one of these prepped mason jar yogurts!

Granola and oats are optional. I’m watching grains so I didn’t add them, but they would be delicious, I’m sure.

I also made a version with honey on the bottom as my fruit option and it was fabulous. If you can obtain locally sourced honey, this with fresh squeezed citrus would be a powerful immune booster.
